About the Author
Aislinn Brophy (she/they) is an actor, writer, and arts administrator based in the Atlanta area. She was born and raised in South Florida, but made her way up to the frigid northeast for college. Their hobbies include pawning off their baking on anybody nearby, doing funny voices, and dismantling the patriarchy. Aislinn has a degree in Theater, Dance & Media, and her experiences as a performer consistently wiggle their way into her writing. In all aspects of her work as an artist, she is passionate about exploring identity and social justice issues. Their debut YA novel, How To Succeed in Witchcraft, will be published fall 2022, with a second untitled novel to follow.
Praise for How to Succeed in Witchcraft

"The perfect witchy read for fall, this debut is a wonderful contemporary fantasy." --BuzzFeed

"Aislinn Brophy adds another dynamite offering to the magical school canon." --Nerdist

★ "Brophy's rapidly paced debut grounds its magical backdrop by exploring themes of capitalism, grooming, privilege, and racism, and Shay and Ana's enemies-to-lovers romance offers a sweet reprieve from Mr. B's ominous intentions." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"This book does the most, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't love it." --The Book Riot Podcast

"Delivers a killer plot packed with meaty metaphor and soul-warming sapphic romance. This book is captivating, romantic, and deeply powerful." --Aiden Thomas, New York Times bestselling author of Cemetery Boys

"A delightful debut. . . . Come for the crackling queer banter, stay for the history of magic (steeped in shrewd social consciousness)." --Ryan Douglass, New York Times bestselling author of The Taking of Jake Livingston

"Sure to delight and burn with righteous rage." --Jessica Lewis, author of Bad Witch Burning

"The lightly magical world with two queer leads that debut author Brophy creates closely mirrors ours, from social issues regarding race and gender to the dilemmas teenagers face in planning their futures. . . . #MeToo with a magical twist." --Kirkus Reviews

"Despite the creative use of magic, the novel succeeds even beyond its fantasy components. . . . A welcome addition to the fantasy genre." --Booklist

"A well-developed modern world. . . . With cool magic in a deeply diverse world, this begs for a sequel." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Well written with well-developed characters . . . a good LGBTQIA+ addition to any collection." --School Library Journal

"Rest assured. It's a good read. . . . How to Succeed in Witchcraft should be required reading." --Geek Girl Authority
